“A new arms race no one will benefit”. NATO will discuss measures aimed at deterring Russia

NATO urges Russia and China to engage in constructive dialogue on the issue of arms control because “a new arms race no one will benefit”. On 16 June, said the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, commenting on the capacity of Russia’s nuclear potential. Transcript of Stoltenberg published on the NATO website.

In particular, Stoltenberg recalled that the deployment of Russian missile system SSC-8 (missile complexes “Iskander”) led to the termination of the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate-range and shorter-range in 2019. However, according to him, Russia continued “to upgrade its missile capabilities, including the use of hypersonic weapons”.

“I expect the Ministers of defense [of NATO countries] will agree to the adoption of a substantial and balanced package of retaliatory political and military measures,” – said the NATO Secretary General.

According to Stoltenberg, these measures will include strengthening air and missile defense of NATO and the deployment of combat aircraft fifth generation. However, he said the Alliance “is not going to repeat the destabilizing behavior of Russia, and host new nuclear land-based missiles in Europe.”

Tensions between NATO and Russia increased in 2014, against the background of Russian aggression against Ukraine in Crimea and the Donbass. In the final Declaration of the NATO summit, which was held in December 2019 in London, Russia’s actions were called a threat to Euro-Atlantic security.
